Without this mark of holiness, our word will have difficulty in touching the heart of modern man. But if it is well oriented, above all by a pedagogy of evangelization, it is rich in values. We exhort all those who have the task of evangelizing, by whatever title and at whatever level, always to nourish spiritual fervor This fervor demands first of all that we should know how to put aside the excuses which would impede evangelization. These elements may appear to be contradictory, indeed mutually exclusive.
To live the sacraments in this way, bringing their celebration to a true fullness, is not, as some would claim, to impede or to accept a distortion of evangelization: The transposition has to be done with the discernment, seriousness, respect and competence which the matter calls for in the field of liturgical expression, and in the areas of catechesis, theological formulation, secondary ecclesial structures, and ministries.
She exists in order to evangelize, that is to say, in order to preach and teach, to be the channel of the gift of grace, to reconcile sinners with God, and to perpetuate Christ’s sacrifice in the Mass, which is the memorial of His death and glorious resurrection.

Let us add some other signs of this love. Many parochial or other communities live and are held together thanks to the Sunday homily, when it possesses these qualities.
Is this not perhaps one of the great sicknesses of evangelization today? Families resulting from a mixed marriage also have the duty of proclaiming Christ to the children in the fullness of the consequences of a common Baptism; they have moreover the difficult task of becoming builders of unity.
And, as we said at the end of the last Synod, they will be a hope for the universal Church to the extent: In many cases it was an heroic love. The God of truth expects us to be the vigilant defenders and devoted preachers of truth.

They could not, without a misuse of terms, be called ecclesial communautes egangelii base, even if while being hostile to the hierarchy, they claim to remain within the unity of the Church.
This mandate is not accomplished without her, and still less against her.
Moreover we make our own the desire of the Fathers of the Third General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, for a collaboration marked by greater commitment with the Christian brethren with whom we are not yet united in perfect unity, taking as a basis the foundation of Baptism and the patrimony of faith which is common to us.
The church and her mission are inseparable from Christ and his mission.
